According to the Torch, he and Tyler Reks were "fired" by NXT GM William Regal on this week's episode of NXT, so I assume that's what he's referring to (unless he's also been fired in real life).

Happy trails, Curt.

Former half of the WWE tag team champions, but here's how I'll always remember you:

On the surface, looks like a internet angle, esp given regal's twitter feuds with recks and dean ambrose.

And that image is why I'll forever think of him as "Big Pimpin'" Curt Hawkins.

I really hate to think they'd waste a fake firing angle on NXT, but that's what it looks like to me. If he really is gone, happy trails, indeed.

Normally, spring cleaning comes after the draft, but who even knows if we're getting one at this point...or if it's even necessary anymore.

Yea, that's how it plays out on the show, this is just an extension of the storyline. They'll probably be finding a way back next week, or are getting moved to one of the other shows.

I think it's the NXT storyline Hawkins/Reks/Regal/Striker are currently involved in. I'm actually starting to like Reks and Hawkins on that show and think they need to move to one of the big shows and eventually a tag title push. They have that skeevy douchebags in shitty bands I expect from groups like Limp Bizkit or Nickelback, which oddly works for them.

Reks and Hawkins, not the shit bands.

No, I've met Fred Durst. He is a skeevy douchebag in a shitty band.

I never watched NXT, but maybe they could retool the show (maybe they've done this already?) to give a spot where the lower midcard guys squeezed out of TV time by the "SuperShow" concept can develop. Last I heard NXT was in week 40-something of a season that had dwindled to about 6 contenders.

With the half dozen or so new faces appearing on the main shows the last couple of weeks, just yesterday I was looking back to page 12 of the Wrestling section archives because I figured it was about time for the annual future endeavoring. Based on last years' thread (The W), which was themed "who do you think is getting the ax this year?", maybe we should all just wait to comment on the actual firings.

3 competitors, but besides that, that's basically what they've done with the show already. The "competition" has become something of a running gag, and they're doing their own NXT-centred storylines with undercard guys who don't normally appear on Raw or Smackdown. Tyson Kidd has turned face and gotten back together with Natalya on NXT, someone kidnapped Matt Striker, the Usos and Reks/Hawkins have feuded, there's been a love triangle with Johnny Curtis, Derrick Bateman and Maxine, and AJ and Hornswoggle were dating before the Daniel Bryan storyline started.

On last week's NXT, Michael McGillicutty broke into the Divas locker room and stole a pair of Natalya's panties, bringing them out onto the stage and sniffing them to upset Tyson Kidd who was in the ring. Only on NXT!

If you're on this show, you're not making Raw or SmackDown and you've clearly pissed someone off. I feel bad for guys like Alex Riley and Tyson Kidd, who deserve better than this drivel. But yes, this show has gone from a competition to wrestling purgatory. The glass ceiling is now spelled "N-X-T."

NXT sounds amazing. I take it that it is internet only, but it sounds like it should be running all over on syndication.

One of the best parts of NXT is watching the wrestlers walking around wearing merchandise from barbershopwindow.com

It's still a glorious show, and Regal being one of the main people on tv lately has only made it more glorious to watch.

Coincidentally Titus O'Neil and Darren "Brown Cena" Young received letters to officially join the Smackdown roster. There really is "Redemption" on NXT Redemption after all.

For what it's worth, it's still aired in prime time in Canada on TV, though it's an internet show everywhere else in the world as far as I know!

Haha, yes!

I watched last week and was mesmerized by it. I don't know if it's awful or brilliant, but I love it either way.

I also legitimately think Hawkins is a super talent. Good worker, really good mic skills/facials, and has charisma. All he needs is the right opportunity and I think he'll surprise a lot of people.
